Please Use This Word: “Roblet”

This post has nothing to do with Dallas — except for the fact that I am a human who lives and works in that fine city. On to the business at hand: I need each of you to use the word “roblet” in your daily correspondence and conversation. I adopted this rare word here. You, too, might wish to adopt a rare word, but just know that in doing so, you must promise to spread the use of said word so that it (the word) does not fall completely out of favor. That’s what I’m doing. Spreading my word. Keeping my promise. I’m a promise keeper. ( “Roblet” means to lead astray. According to the OED, the word — until now — was only found in the writing of a guy named Nathanial Fairfax.)
